Yep, it’s official. The game which took almost 3 years for the game engine to be made is coming in 2009. The Sims 3 allow unique sims to walk around their neighbourhoods. We now know:
1) Seamless, lively new neighbourhoods
2) Entirely new “create a sim”
3) New realistic personalities
4) New unlimited customization
Apparently there will be no transitions when your sims move from one place to another. They can just walk away from the house and visit anyone they want, freely. Who knows? They may walk into their nemesis or bosses (I smell interesting plots).
The new and improved “create a sim” allow more detail control of molding. I guess we can really get the look we want(I’m so reviving Anna Nicole Smith). Not only more bone structures, hair colours, skin tones and features to select from, The Sims 3 introduces a “trait system.” (It’s even patented) The sims could be given five different traits each, so I can make a neat, grumpy, control freak, emotional granny. Just to save you the work from doing the math, this allows 7 million traits combinations. YAY, not more same sims walking around!
